COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Session Black is short, dark and totally drinkable. The initial tastes are a subtle pairing of caramel and chocolate malt flavors with precise hopping to provide an elegant citrus background to the delicate finish of dark cocoa.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a small frothy light tan head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a sweet roasted malt with raisin and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a roasted malt taste with coffee and chocolate. Easy to drink a good schwarzbier from full sail.

Cool little bottle from Lukas Liquor. Pours clear brown with small light tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and caramel. Flavor is roasted malt, caramel, chocolate and some nuts. Very easy drinker which makes for a great session beer. Body is a little thin but still a good beer.

Chef Chad (104) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Well it was a session beer. Smells of some earth and grassy and some malt and that lager smell. Pours a watery black with some head. Too watery and carbonation was a bit off. Flavor was mild sweetness with light roast tones. It was quite quaffable and drinkable. I like it just hated the body

How come my beer does not look like the one in the glass in the picture. Dark brown with NO head. Aroma was mildly roasty & slight smokiness. Taste was the same as the aroma & was a very easy drinking beer.

Picked up in Pike’s Place Market. Found a 12-pack of this. Nice dark brown color, with a thin head. Very good looking schwarzbier. Roasted malt aroma. Roast is the most noticeable aspect of the aroma. Can’t really get by the roast on this one. Roasted flavor as well. Almost some toffee sweetness coming through as well. This beer is decent, but wasn’t what I expected. Somewhat smooth. A decent brew, but nothing I would plan on buying on a regular basis.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 7, 2009
I really liked the regular session lager, but this has improved upon that recipe ten fold. Strong roastiness coming through in the nose, with just a touch of floral hoppiness. Smooth with well balanced carbonation. Very easy to drink.

Reid (1860) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Dark brown coloured beer, small tan head, that dissapears fast yet leaves good lace behind. Roasty,toast like aromas..some toffeeish aspects. Flavour is the same as the nose toasty maltiness, some slight hints of coffee and a touch of hop. Nice mouthfeel to this, silky with an abrubt dry finish. Good drinkable cheap beer what more can one ask for. Hope this sticks around as it would be ideal for Super Bowl and the likes.

Roasty and toasty caramel nose. Reddish brown in color with a nice head and lots of carbonation. Nice melding of caramel and chocolate, slight corn and slight hops. Refreshing and quaffable. I like it!
